Compliance Masters Group

The financial industry has seen unprecedented regulatory change in recent years. Some changes are effectively immediately while others may have effective dates ranging from 30 days to three years after enactment or issuance. As rules and regulations applicable to financial institutions continue to evolve and increase, it is critical for financial institution staff to stay informed in order to manage change and comply with regulatory requirements. Compliance Resource offers the Compliance Masters Group (CMG) to help compliance professions master new and existing compliance issues.

Our Compliance Masters Groups meets for one hour every other week to discuss new rules or issues related to existing rules that are emerging. Each CMG meeting generally consists of a review of compliance news and industry updates, training on a specific topic from an industry expert, and products to assist in members’ compliance efforts.

Are you effectively and efficiently mastering compliance changes? Are you aware of the new requirements? Have you developed new and revised existing policies and procedures that might be needed? Have you trained your staff, your board of directors and senior management on new requirements? Are you prepared to continue to take action on even more new regulatory requirements? Are you facing this massive task alone? Through our Compliance Masters Group we will master these issues together.
